The First Tier of Avalon lies a short distance above the creek. It is home to some good sport routes, including Sword In The Stone (10), Mists of Avalon (10a), Iron Maiden (9+), Slayer (10b), Body Count (11a), and Marquis de Sade (10d).
If you crossed the creek at the Tyrolean, go a short way up the talus field, and angle left to the base of the wall.
